Gravitomagnetism

Gravitomagnetism

Author: Dr Ronald A Evans Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2021

Gravity is the weakest of the natural forces and yet it dominates our lives. We know how to make use of its properties and how to overcome it. But we can't control it. To do that we must be able to generate and control gravity's hidden companion force field, called gravitomagnetism. For those people not wanting to bother with mathematics they can skip over the equations and just enjoy the unfolding scientific adventure story. It begins with the history of gravity research, from the discovery that gravity holds the Solar System together, through special relativity, then a brief look at quantum mechanics and on to an outline of Einstein's general relativity. Analogues with gravity, particularly electromagnetism, are examined in the search for a breakthrough in understanding how to control gravity, followed by a review of Faraday's gravity experiments. Finally, a number of ground-based experiments to detect gravitomagnetism are proposed. Hopefully Gravitomagnetism will stimulate a few scientists and engineers to carry out some of the experiments in the first step towards the ultimate goal of gravity control.

Neutrinos

Neutrinos

Author: Neil A. Stewart Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 19/02/2021

In this compilation, the authors first investigate the potential use of mineral lorandite from Allchar to estimate the Sun's age. A brief history of the discovery of neutrinos is provided, focusing on properties such as electrical charge, mass, and sources. A brief introduction to neutrinos in the standard model of particle physics is also provided, followed by neutrino oscillations both in vacuum and in matter. Special experiments involving neutrino beams generated by accelerators are planned to study the properties of neutrinos on long baselines. Lastly, within the context of a U(1)Ba'L minimal model, the authors discuss the effects of the anomalous magnetic moment and electric dipole moment of the tau-neutrino on stellar energy loss rates through the process of pair-annihilation.

Reference Frame Theory

Reference Frame Theory

Author: Paul C. Krause Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/02/2021

This book sets forth the work the author has done over the last sixty years in reference fame theory from the arbitrary reference frame, to the coining of the title of reference frame theory, to the recent establishing of the basis of reference frame theory. It begins with introduction to Tesla's rotating magnetic field that is then integrated into reference frame theory. The author moves on to describe the link between reference frame theory and symmetrical induction machines and synchronous machines. Subsequent chapters explore the field orientation of brushless dc drives and induction machine drives. The book concludes with an exploration of applications that utilize reference frame theory.

Simply Quantum Physics

Simply Quantum Physics

Author: DK Format: Hardback Release Date: 04/02/2021

Discovering quantum physics has never been easier. Combining bold graphics with easy-to-understand text, Simply Quantum Physics is an essential introduction to the subject for those who are short of time but hungry for knowledge. It is a perfect beginner's guide to the strange and fascinating world of subatomic physics that at times seems to conflict with common sense. Covering more than 100 key ideas from the basics of quantum mechanics to the uncertainty principle and quantum tunnelling, it is divided into pared-back, single- or double-page entries that explain concepts simply and visually. Assuming no previous knowledge of physics, Simply Quantum Physics demystifies some of the most groundbreaking ideas in modern science and introduces the work of some of the most famous physicists of the 20th and 21st centuries, including Albert Einstein, Neils Bohr, Erwin Schroedinger, and Richard Feynman. Whether you are studying physics at school or college, or simply want a jargon-free overview of the subject, this essential guide is packed with everything you need to understand the basics quickly and easily.

Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles

Absorption and Scattering of Light by Small Particles

Author: Craig F. Bohren, Donald R. Huffman, Eugene E. Clothiaux Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/02/2021

This self-contained, interdisciplinary textbook examines and illustrates how small particles absorb and scatter light, treating both in equal measure. This because any discussion of the optical behavior of small particles is inseparable from a full understanding of that of the parent material-bulk matter -- to divorce one concept from the other is to render any study on scattering theory seriously incomplete. This second edition has been completely corrected, revised, and updated.
